A Director in the Tinubu/Shettima 2023 presidential campaign organisation, Naja’atu Bala Muhammad, has resigned.
She announced her resignation in a statement on Saturday, January 21, just one month to the presidential election.
Muhammad was the Director of Civil Society in the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In her resignation letter to the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, the former commissioner decried the state of the nation.
The 67-year-old activist said she decided to quit after realising that her values and beliefs no longer aligned with party politics.
Naja’atu said she observed that political platforms have no ideological differences and are “robes that politicians wear to serve their personal needs and interests”.
The politician fondly called Hajiya Naja, expressed regret that citizens still face insecurity, poverty, inequality, and lack of access to basic services.
She further advised Nigerians ahead of the general elections to be “aware of the consequences of their decisions and their choices.
“The challenges that Nigeria faces today require me to continue championing the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience as I remain absolutely loyal to Nigeria
“I am committed to supporting individuals that are truly interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps,” she said.
